Former Nigeria international Sam Sodje is of the opinion that Chelsea midfielder John obi Mikel should stay at Chelsea and fight for his position.
The 28-year-old looked almost certain to leave the club in this transfer window. However, Chelsea’s failure to secure the signing of Paul Pogba before transfer deadline day has left him facing another six months at Stamford Bridge. It is clear that he is no longer the first choice at Chelsea. For several years – after the departure of Mourinho in his first spell, Mikel was the first team regular at Chelsea. He was seen as the replacement for Claude Makelele.
